Interactive Map of the North West
Known as the “Heritage Province”,
the North West is a rewarding holiday destination that offers exciting
wildlife and adventure encounters as well as the opportunity to participate
in a rich cultural and historical heritage.
Home to the fantastic Pilanesberg and Madikwe game reserves, North West
has the big five, fantastic bird-life and wide-open African skies. The
area boasts archaeological discoveries that go back to the beginnings
of humankind, as well as the world-famous Sun City hotel complex, creatively
dedicated to ancient lost civilizations and modern-day pleasures.
This is also the land of the author Herman
Charles Bosman and his tales of Oom Schalk and the Groot Marico where
mampoer (a very potent home-distilled peach brandy) and local legend
were born and where time stands still. This
is where the Bakgatla tribe believe in totem animals and that their wellbeing
is dictated by the stars.
The province extends all the way from Gauteng to the Botswana border. The area is flanked by the Magaliesburg Mountains and the Kalahari Desert. North West has a population of just over three million people.
